Lin’s Bin 12th Anniversary

A new feature was born on October 14, 2002 called Lin’s Bin. Why don’t you answer people’s questions on the air? Why would I do that? Because it’s sponsored. Oh, got it. That was over 2,400 pages ago. Two questions and two answers a week. The first question? ‘What did Pavlov do with the dog saliva?’ This morning I asked my loyal Facebook followers if they had a favorite. Here’s the original script from the front runner. Hope you enjoy it.
